Colorful Modular Table for Fresh Dining Moments

We recently received a fun and colorful table design from Helsinki based KAYIWA studio. Here is the description together with a few relevant photographs from the designers: “NZELA is a sturdy modular table set made of grade A birch plywood. Plywood is used instead of plain solid wood because of its better resistance to the effects caused by humidity. The no-tool setup takes a mere 3 minutes per table and you may seamlessly conjoin – in whichever direction – as many tables. Storage is also easy – simply disassemble and place the table parts in a neat pile. NZELA may not only be used for dining but also as a conference table, a statement piece for the lobby or for an unofficial ping-pong match, to mention. There is ample legroom and a toddler’s high chair fits perfectly too. You may choose from 3 tabletop colors – red/white, blue/white or yellow/white. Additionally, the visual appearance (the glossiness or hues of the colors) may be personalized; and the table parts can be re-arranged to suit any space or taste. The De Stijl movement inspired this objet d’art. The name Nzela is Luganda for Angella in homage to my grandmother.” Do you find this table appealing or do you prefer a more sober model?

    It looks very nice but seems completely inefficient with space. The design of the legs means that you can really only fit 2 people per side on a table made from a double module. Even putting someone by the leg of a normal table is possible, if not ideal, but this would be impossible here.
